Thanks to stars like Emma, Bella, and Christina Hendricks, red heads have gone from social outcasts to total bombshells! I recently got a red hair makeover for summer — here’s how you can get the celeb look, too!
Red hair has not been this hot since, well, ever, which is why I knew I had to get the look for my new summer ‘do! And the only place that could give me perfect crimson locks? Salon to the stars — Pierre Michel in New York City! Read about my makeover journey below!
Pierre Michel Salon — How To Get A Red Hair Makeover
For my celebrity-inspired look, colorist Joanna decided that the best way to take me to a red hot tone was to keep it in line with my already ombre color. First, she chose a dark golden copper blonde to brighten and warm up my natural brown base, while leaving my ends blonde.
Then, to connect the base with the ends, she gave me some face-framing highlights and strawberry blonde lowlights. For the final touch, Joanna lightened my eyebrows to make the overall look appear more natural, while adding a gloss to my strands to give it that beautiful celebrity shine!
Finishing Touches — The Cut
For the cut , I wanted to keep it simple, since I am somehow still in the “growing my hair out” phase, even at 23 years old. Mia at Pierre Michel gave me some slight angles around my face to keep my look light and airy — perfect for any summer day! She then curled my hair using just a round brush and blow dryer to give me loose, bouncy curls.
I love my new red look and am so excited to rock it all summer long! See my before and after pics in the gallery!
